Boston, Massachusetts 



AS PRESENTED BY THE 




With the snap of a camera shutter and the 
occasional click of a typewriter key, the 
staff of 1940 has captured Simmons in a 
bright blue mood — at study, at work and 
at play — packaged it in shiny paper and 
tied it up with gleaming lengths of ribbon.

GEOGRAPHICALLY SPEAKING 





Boston as we see it . . . 

Is a conglomerate picture of metropolitanism 
against a setting of beautiful parks, cultural hob- 
nobbing, and historical bric-a-brac. Surrounding 
the willow-graced Fens are Simmons girls' favorite 
haunts. Near Faneuil Hall is Durgin-Park; down- 
stream from the College is the art museum; on the 
Charles, dinghy-dates are common; beyond the 
river sits John Harvard; above Simmons sight-seers 
rises the capitol dome; over the harbor stands the 
Blue Ship; after the final whistle at Harvard, crowds 
turn homeward; on the Common, passers-by feed 
the ever-hungry pigeons. 




A "CANDID" WORII OR TWO A IEOI T US 



Candidly speaking, we are far from andid. Not that we're the quiet church mouse type, far from it. We 
like noise and verbosity but not tl a t "post hoc ergo propter hoc" definiteness that makes one feel 
adolescent for lack of a philosoph of life. We like good things in life and good things to eat. 

Typically, we like cokes and smokesjmd find plenty of time for both. Our mental makeup is as heter- 

! I 
ogeneous as a Met libretto . We'll slout to high heaven if we think we're oppressed, but we'll make no 

panaceatic formulas for public consimption . We like our conversation spiced and our reading rational . 

Our parents think we're tops. Tect, boys think we're dreadfully individualistic. Harvard boys think 




we're career hounds. "Fronti nulla ides."

We study — everything "that's good for us" - in quantities 
that give us a mental stomach-ache: 

Brahms and bibliographies, physics and French verbs, 
shorthand and shortbread, first aid and Phys. Ed. 

All the ingredients for a well-done education are tossed 
together into a "tested and approved" curricular mixing bowl, 
stirred, beaten (and even pounded) by an eager faculty staff of 
chefs under then ever-tiring administrative eye of head- dietitians 
Mesick and Beatley. 

Four years of simmering — with the addition of a little 
fun and a lot of friendship, and from the frying pan which is 
Simmons emerges the well-prepared Simmons senior — and 
thence out into the fire of the world of 1940. 






THE ADMINISTRATION 

A living rock . . . around which, year after year, pour hurrying 
streams of students, the Administration remains a steadfast land- 
mark in the channel of college life. Never quite submerged by 
the rushing, noisy current, the Administration shares our 
worries, scholastic, social, vocational, and financial, and guides 
us safely through all hazards to success — we hope. 

First and foremost administrative officer, head of "Mr. 
Beatley's Seminary for Young Ladies," champion, when it's 
good for them, of what the students want, is a diplomat without 
portfolio, our President. A championship brand of baseball on 
the faculty team, engineering feats on model railroads, stirring 
speeches, praiseworthy innovations, quips to fit occasions, a 
memory for thousands of names, a popularity which his wife 
shares, and millions of worries, he takes in his lengthy stride.

THE SENIORS " Veni > vidi ' vici '" or did we? 

Anyway, we had a lot of fun. 

Tradition couldn't be escaped and we sweltered through 
the first week of September in our black "bat costumes," trying 
not to let shiny noses outshine our dignity. Headed by General 
Phyl Doherty, we stormed the Colonnade and strained our 
vocal cords in an attempt to out-sing the lower-classmen, as was 
our duty. 

Weeks later, minus the encumberment of cap and gown, 
we were enjoying ourselves. We went to dances, we gave parties, 
we started clubs, concocted new traditions and carried on old 
ones. Our invasion of Evans Hall, our forays into the world of 
business, our handling of the reins of Stu. G., served to remind 
us that we have reached the top. — The end is near, "miserabile 
dictu." 




H 






We arrived in the good old days when 
Scholastic Aptitude was non-existent and 
radios were demons. We were timid guinea 
pigs then for the experiment of a new 
guidance program. Needless to say, we 
would not be guided and finished a socially 
perfect year with an unheard of number of 
casualties. From bibs we graduated to 
wedding gown, reverted to baby clothes 
for Frolic and ended the year as pseudo- 
sophisticales at Freshman Formal. 



A slump was predicted for Sophomore 
year. For once we were predictable. By 
Junior year we had regained our "joic de 
vivre." We reveled in one-thirties and 
poised ourselves for the leap into leader- 
ship. Our Dine 'n Roll became a tradition 
and Junior Prom our loudest memory, 
June brought the Commencement of '39 
with Rita Fay supervising Daisy Chain 
and the rest of us acting as waitresses and 
ushers. 



[36] 





The Class Day capping of Phyl and our 
accession to the steps of the Colonnade 
marked the real beginning of our Senior 
year. From cap and gown we changed to 
rags for Jackie's Hobo Party. We plunged 
into a "gay nineties" atmosphere when we 
entertained the Freshmen with Peg Hig- 
gins as hostess. Apples were polished more 
brightly than ever before at Al Dickey's 
feast for Lions and Lambs. Connie Hill- 
man made Senior Prom as great a success 



as her memorable Junior Prom. And so we 
come to Class Day when we must sing our 
last under Ruth Chatterton's direction 
and yield the steps to next year's Seniors.

THE JUNIORS "Where, oh where are the 

Jolly Juniors?" — every- 
where and into everything. Peter's pert followers are getting 
ready to be next year's leaders. 

Extending a welcoming hand to flustered Freshmen was 
our first and pleasantest assignment. After courting the Fresh- 
man Class with dates for lunch at our favorite haunts, we mar- 
ried them by proxy in the person of Jeanne Murray in Refectory 
Chapel to the strains of "Lohengrin" and popping flash bulbs. 

Came March and Dine 'n Roll and we explored the floor 
of the Tech rink and found it hard. Came April and we were 
beset by worries. Term papers could wait, but where was a 
man for Prom? We found the man but the hours fled, leaving 
us only with happy memories and the prospect of Class Day, 
where we were to lay down the Daisy Chain to don the cap 
and gown.

THE SOPHOMORES The perils of their 

first year all safely 
passed, the Sophomores are on their way. We dare to be differ- 
ent and we dare to be difficult; we haven't the slightest fear of 
the much touted "Sophomore Slump," socially anyway. 

One mascot wasn't enough for us so now we follow the 
lively leadership of Honey's pet charges, Ann and Andy. One 
style of school ring wasn't enough for us to choose from so we 
gave old tradition a new twist at Sophomore Luncheon by 
blossoming forth with a ring of new design to suit our fancy. A 
shuffle at Shuffle couldn't describe us: we fairly pranced. In 
May we had the temerity to wake the Seniors at sunrise but we 
made amends by stuffing them with strawberries. Now, in point 
of time, we're halfway through, but we've only just begun.

THE FRESHMEN Frolicsome Freshmen 

was no name for us when 
we first arrived at Simmons — we didn't have time to be! We 
were hand-picked before we came, we were told, but it took a 
week of exams and lectures before we were pigeonholed. 

The Juniors took us by the hand and treated us like little 
sisters but it was weeks before we stopped ending up in the 
Assembly when we were headed for the Lounge. We explored 
Boston and discovered Coolidge Corner, learned to sing Sim- 
mons songs in somewhat feeble voices, doffed our growing 
maturity when we donned bibs, saw Virginia Chapin married 
to "Mr." Murray, Jr., and went home to sleep on wedding cake, 
exhibited our social graces at Formal, — and ended up in 
rompers at Frolic! No more rompers now, though; we're Sopho- 
mores — almost.

We work — wondrously well when we've a mind to and we 
have to do something to work off that mental stomach-ache: 

Plays and posters, collections and concerts, magazines and 
marriage clinics, fencing and financing. 

Like baseball teams of the Simmons League, each club 
has its stars, its managers, its scouts and the never-to-be-forgot- 
ten rookies. Each fall the season's schedule is mapped out; each 
winter we go to bat for our favorite clubs, and the year brings a 
series of base hits in fun, represented by teas, receptions, and 
outings. 

In a league without championships, our extracurricular 
teams produce the finest and fittest of players, ready to take their 
place among the major leagues. 






STUDENT 



Lord High Executors of the 
will of the Administration and 
GOVERNMENT the desires of the student body, 

Stu. G. organizations, omnipo- 
tent and omnipresent, rule the social and curricular roost. 
Weighty proclamations emerging weekly from secret conclaves 
and numerous notes to naughty children festoon the bulletin 
boards to keep us posted on the doughty doings of these powers 
that be. 

Wearers of the gold and blue badge troop through the 
corridors, keeping appointments, planning parleys, posting 
programs, "dating" Simmons via "the little red book," stirring 
up sociability, talking teas, feeding the faculty, making over- 
tures to orators, and conniving for concerts. 

From President Edwards and her supreme council, or 
Chairman Hartman and her social climbers, to Rosalie Sinek 
and her speaker-snarers, we nominate Stu. G. students as Sim- 
mons' busiest business women. 







Dorm Council passes on house privileges 



Student 
Government 

Thirteen is this year's lucky number. 
Thirteen black-clad Seniors and intent 
underclassmen have gathered weekly in 
sometimes solemn conclave to give us 
radios at last and regulated liberty at 
least; thirteen Student Government mem- 
Do™ Board dignitaries 




bers have accomplished electric fans on 
stepladders for smoking-room ventilation 
and serious discussion of questions through 
the question box and suggestions by word 
of mouth, all aimed at making us happy. 
Lord Spring and Lady Edwards with their 
retinue have entertained us royally at Old 
English Dinner, ruled from hypothetical 
high-chairs over Freshman Bib Party, and 
finally in May have handed on the blue 
and gold badges but not the memories of 
Student Government membership. 

As Stu. G. is to Simmons in whole, so 
Dormitory Council is to the dormitories. 
House chairmen all, Council members 
have known whereof they spoke and have 
not hesitated to speak. Screened in a corner 
of Evans Hall basement, they have en- 
larged and created rules with such success 
that they have denied us all justification in 
breaking them and have lightened the 
duties of the "solemn seven" of their 
number who form the justice-dealing 
Dormitory Board. Many a quaking first- 
offender has made good resolutions under 
the questioning of the Board and many a 
rule-breaker has regretted before the jus- 
tice of their decisions. 

Suggestions from Dorm Council, plus 
suggestions from here, there, and every- 
where, clarified by discussion, are the

essential ingredients of Dormitory Ad-

able aides from Stu. G. Council and the 
faculty ponder such problems as o,:3o's

toward making our microcosm happy. 

Honor Board is not a police force and is 
seldom a law court, but it is a living re- 
minder to us that we are big girls now and 
must behave like ladies. It is the power 
behind the unproctored exam, the right 
honorable eleven who put us on our 
honor.

Microcosm 



Those who know suspect that the name 
of this amateur publication might well be 
changed from "Microcosm" to "Mael- 
strom," for it is both, as the habitues of 
Editors' Room can testify. As Simmons is a 
small world within a world, so also is this 
yearbook which by statistical research 
shows 150 pages at an average man-hour 
approach of 31^ hours per page, but how 
chaotic each of these hours has been only a 
few know well, though many suspect. 

Crazy as is the small world reflected in 
this book, so much more so is the staff that 
from rank amateurs has been graduated 
by dint of much pushing and not a little 
pulling into a first-class, on-the-nose pub- 
lishing organization. Fondest among the 
wishes of that staff are the hopes of doing 
it over, that is the year, not the book, for 
each dotted "i", each period-studded par- 
agraph and each finished cut represents a 
unit of toil, a degree of anticipation and a 
mark of achievement. 

From the tattered remnants of a beau- 
tiful dummy, repeatedly slashed to fit 
finances, has been extracted the finished 
product. Between the two are takes and

Celebration after creation 



Balm to the minds of harried editors and 
perpetrators of the deeds that made the 
book were the members of the staff, often 
confused by garbled instructions and re- 
versed decisions but striving madly for all 
that. They responded nobly to eleventh- 
hour instructions and time after time ac- 
complished the all but impossible with un- 
failing good nature to win the undying- 
gratitude of the editors. They, and others 
whose name is legion, have managed by 
dint of great effort to compress Simmons 
into the few cubic inches of paper called 
the 1940 Mic.

hardworking gals of the better business for

smile of Dot Fisher, business bloomed and 
brought forth a balanced budget . . .

gathered in the shekels while subscription- 
campaigning Connie Hillman dotted the

News 



New to News this year are a column of 
letters from all over Europe, a theatre 
bulletin-board to keep us up to the minute 
with reviews and pictures, and a new 
bookcase in Editors' Room. By no means 
new to News are Tuesday deadlines, Wed- 
nesday nights at Louie's, Thursdays of 
distribution, and Friday re-hashings. 

The quietness of the journalistic front 
on Thursdays is sooner or later shattered 
by the worries of Editor Marj Knowlton, 
the forays into Editors' Room of Ruthie 
Gifford for more copies to circulate, 
Merry Stebbins' excited search to see if 
that lecturer's name got spelled correctly, 
Betty Kitchen's clattering typing of notes 
to the Feature Staff about deadlines, 
Mary Turchin's berating of ambitious 
journalism students who will use News 
typewriters to write up assignments, Dotty 
Williams' worried searching of Social 
News to see who's been left out, and Mary 
Anastos' smiling queries about the activ- 
ities of Pris Bowman's advertising staff. 

Friday, and the whole thing starts 
again. Assignment sheets cover the bulle- 
tin boards, desks are snowed under with 
piles of yellow copypaper, editors write 
notes to themselves and others and 



promptly lose them, spaces can't be filled 
and reporters charge out into corridors 
to gather information, pencils are bitten, 
brows are furrowed. Wednesday, ready or 
not, News goes to press, where headlines 
are written on the spot and copy stretches 
and contracts like rubber. 

The last fling of the '40 staff brings 
News Dance with its miniature newspapers 
for programs and hostess Sally Simmons 
resplendent in white net and brocade. 

In April the struggles of the '40 staff are 
laid down, only to be picked up again by 
the staff of '41. A new News staff moves in 
to fill Editors' Room waste baskets with 
yellow paper.

Putting the paper to bed 



P. S. 



P.S., an old magazine in bright new 
dress, composed of perpetual excitement, 
aims to be colorful and interesting. Layout 
experiments, calls for pictures and more 
pictures, ideas, articles, stories, sketches, 
ink-brightened pages folded in covers 
startling even to the editors, conscientious- 
ly compiled and heralded by posters, 
make the magazines that appear briefly on 
hall table. 

Editor Priscilla Pickett searches for 
ideas and for copy and finds worries; 
Fran Faxon searches for money and finds 



more worries; everyone searches the style 
manual and finds confusion. Marjorie 
Closson guards the galleys, Sylvia Cook 
tries to decipher the instructions of frantic 
editors for art work, Pris Johnson tries to 
get rid of the magazines and is appalled 
when they disappear too quickly; Sis 
Wilson, ambushed behind a camera, cap- 
tures prize pictures of people and places. 

Weeks of trying to persuade the staff 
that type isn't made of lastex and the ad- 
vertisers that they're making a good in- 
vestment, weeks of planning layouts, 
checking proofs, and chasing cover pic- 
tures, and P.S. is off to the printer. Relief 
is rampant until someone starts discover- 
ing last-minute errors that have gone to 
the printer and can't be fixed. 

At last the mysterious publication date 
arrives and everything looks brighter than 
expected, especially those covers. The 
weeks of effort seem worth while, until the 
next issue gets under way and new tribu- 
lations loom larger than old ones. Hilda 
Lane renews her search for copy, Pickett 
ponders, Mr. Bosworth is at hand with 
suggestions, editors cry for more cuts, 
more copy, more everything, the deadline 
wavers, the staff slaves and sooner or later 
it's all over . . . until the next time.

Musical Association 

"Music hath charms," and music has 
charmed a great many Simmons girls into 
joining Musical Association. This year the 
Association or the music, or both, seem to 
have had special charm, judging from the 
membership, the largest in four years. 
One hundred forty girls have felt moved 
to sing and play under expert guidance. 

Guided by warbler Fran Tewksbury, 
president Jean McCoy, and director Mr. 
Ring, Glee Club sang so lustily that it

was valuable but beauty was more so and 
soon Glee Club, like many other beautiful 
young things, began to be invited out. The 
first invitation to be accepted was that of 
the Women's College Club in October. 
They were so taken with the charms of 
Simmons' best voices that they proffered 
a second invitation in February. In 
November the club paused for sociability 
at a party with Northeastern in Evans 
Hall playroom. Social life didn't dull the 
girls' propensity for practice, however, 
and the Christmas season found them in 
fine voice for the annual concert of re- 
ligious music at St. Paul's Episcopal 
Church in Brookline. 



Early March found them travelling to 
Worcester for a joint concert with the 
Clark University Glee Club. Clark enter- 
tained them with a tea dance before they 
returned to Simmons to start rehearsals for 
"Iolanthe." Fate intervened, however, 
leaving Glee Club sad at missing the year's 
high light. 

Plans for "Stabat Mater" with the Har- 
vard Orchestra and the Glee Club tea in 
May, plans for its young but thriving 
Madrigal Society, and performances on 
two radio programs kept the Glee Club 
busy without the operetta; and Orchestra, 
playing at Faculty-Transfer Reception 
and the Christmas concert, added its voice 
to the music of Musical Association.

Dramatic Club 



Dramatic Club has taken a new lease on 
life. It has always been important among 
Simmons organizations but this year il is 
the talk of the school because of the aston-

taken.

after a slow birth which began in '38, this 
healthy youngster is the apple of Dra- 
matic Club's eye. 

Ideas, action, acting, and more ideas

Acting can no longer satisfy them all, so 
they are buzzing with plans for a Work- 
shop, and they mean to have a good one.

and ambitiously presented "Maids in 
Uniform," with such success that even 
they were surprised. Student Government 
saw which way the wind was blowing and 
raised the Activities Fee to give them fifty 
cents from each of us so that we can feast 
upon their offerings without delving each 
time into a flattened purse. 

Even now these energy-spenders are not 
satisfied. The name "Dramatic Club," 
they feel, is too prosaic and undramatic 
for such a lively organization. Now, 
headed by a special committee, they have 
taken up sleuthing and deep thinking in an 
attempt to wrest from some source a 
name which will signify enthusiasm and 
hard work.

New styles in the shops, the first robin

magazine, are captured in paint and art- 
fully scattered in the front hall gaily to 
herald approaching occasions. Behind 
those striking "what's, where's and when's" 
are the girls of the Poster Committee, 
artists all. 

Posters with a profit mean a committee 
with a conscience, so when they're not 
putting posters together, they're pulling 
them apart to see what makes them click 
and what might make them click even 
better. They make posters synonymous

Prizes for posters and accolades for 
artists from artists are distributed in May 
when posters are paraded and from among 
the good, three "bests" are chosen. These 
poster protagonists show their versatility 
here and the rest of Simmons gasps with 
amazement. Every club publicity director's 
first thought when faced by a puzzling 
promotion problem is "Get Poster Com- 
mittee to make us a poster for the front 
hall." 



Art Guild 




Still-life study 



Those pictures you see vanishing so 
quickly from the walls of the Lounge every 
year are products of the Art Guild lending 
library; a group of famous paintings aimed 
at brightening many a dormitory room. 

Surpassing even this varied collection of 
art work has been the assemblage of speak- 
ers throughout the year. 

Best of all are the craft classes meeting 
each week under the guidance of an in- 
structor from the Massachusetts School of 
Art, when dexterous artisans plunge into 
the fascination of creation of Christmas 
cards, book plates, rings, bowls, bracelets. 
It's a sure way to forget your troubles.

Academy 



Blue and gold ribbons on gowns, gold 
pins and pendants proudly displayed, are 
the clues to Simmons' intelligentsia. In 
this honored society, election is permanent 
— luckily for some. 

A formal reception ushers new members 
into Academy. An open tea this year 
brought a dramatic presentation by Miss 
Virginia Rogers of the faculty. 

From a program of selections from 
Beethoven, Chopin and Schubert, Acad- 
emy members switched, perhaps unaca- 
demically, to prove that they're no grinds, 
to the musical comedy "Higher and 
Higher" for their annual theater party. 




Intellectual elite 



Ellen Richards 



Scintillating intellects of Science School 
students take holidays from test tubes and 
labyrinthine formulas at meetings of Ellen 
Richards Club, where revelry is reduced to 
a science. 

Once a year, strange to say, Ellen 
Richards has a birthday, and celebrates 
it in fine style. This year Marg Oliver 
sliced the birthday cake with fine pre- 
cision. Hilarious high spot was the M.I.T. 




Scientists celebrate 



"Ice Pickers" reunion where Simmons 
scientists performed the experiment of 
eating Kelly-green ice cream and lived to 
tell the tale. Then there was a picnic to 
punctuate a procession of meetings at 
which interesting speakers furnished mem- 
bers and guests with food for thought. Miss 
Elizabeth Jones lectured on "Cosmic Re- 
search," Miss Evelyn Hearsey on "Emily 
Post in the Laboratory," and Miss Frances 
Waterhouse on "Medical Work at the 
Grenfell Mission." For relaxation from 
science, the girls of the Ellen Richards 
Club turn to science. 



020 Club 



020, gathering place on the shelves for 
books on Library Science, and meeting 
spot for future librarians, has taken a jump 
forward this year by admitting Library 
School Sophomores into its midst. 

Varied and snappy programs through- 
out the year started off with Mr. Bos- 
worth's talk on war plays which empha- 
sized the increasing production of plays as 
reading material. Later in the year came 
an "Information Please" program, faculty 
versus students. Is it significant that die-

tionary prizes were pocketed by the student

of the Neponset Library to give a little of 
the inside of radio publicity for books. 

Every Wednesday afternoon through the 
year, 020 Club has sponsored informal 
teas dedicated to the aid and further en- 
lightenment of famished students and 
faculty. 



Home Economics 



More than a social club for the benefit 
of Home Ec students, Home Ec Club 
offers services which help the whole 
school. Weekly food sales are held and teas 
are planned and prepared for other Sim- 
mons organizations under the leadership 
of Ethel Walsh, Foods Chairman. 

The Clothing majors operate a clothing 
service which is available to students, fac- 
ulty, or even to outsiders. In general, this 
service includes the alteration and fitting. 



drafting, and draping, as well as the mak- 
ing of new garments. A shopping service 
is another function of this group, a service 
which includes advice as well as actual 
purchasing of articles. Rates are based on 
the time spent and the comparative diffi- 
culty of the different jobs. The rates are 
standardized wherever possible to remove 
unequal factors of speed and workmanship. 
The money made from the services is put 
to excellent use. In May, the Home Ec 
Freshmen and Seniors are guests at the 
annual banquet; each year a scholarship is 
given to a worthy Home Ec student, and 
contributions are made to the National 
Fellowship Fund. The Simmons group is a

member of the National Home Economics 
Society, and this year it is paying all the 
expenses of the Massachusetts student 
delegate to the National Home Economics

Every month, the members of the club 
gather at a tea and you can be sure the 
food is good!

Future Nightingales 

Enthusiasm plus and a nearly one 
hundred per cent representation at all 
meetings is what keeps the club of Nursing 
School really strong, and this is quite in 
spite of the more than full program which 
any one who expects to receive a Simmons 
cap and cape undertakes. 

Speakers prominent in the fields of 
nursing and medicine have come from 
China and India and hospitals nearer 
home to Evans Hall during the year. 
Programs ranged from demonstrations of 
nursing technique to demonstrations of 
mental alertness on the part of club mem- 
bers at discussion periods. The favorite 
topic for talk was the fields of nursing and 
their suitability to individual preferences. 

Christmas season meant a party, but the 
toy presents went only temporarily to club 
members: they were rewrapped and sent 
to poor children. After Christmas came 
capping, the high spot of the year and the 
best of all possible send-offs for those 
budding nurses who were about to go into 
hospitals for training. In the Lounge, 
Nightingale candles were lighted, white- 
winged caps placed on the heads of the 
third-year nurses, and gold-lined capes on 
their shoulders, and they were ready to 
step forth as Simmons nurses. 



English Club 

This year the English Club, rather than 
limiting its members to the English 
School, opened its doors to everyone in- 
terested in writing or its professional allies 
and found that publishers aren't the only 
ones interested in publishing and lots of 
readers are interested in writing. 

Here is just the place to meet people 
working right in the fields of editing, news- 
paper work, advertising, or illustrating — 
speakers who willingly drop their sophisti- 
cation for informal chats over the teacups. 
Besides being grand fun, these chats may 
be of real assistance to girls looking for- 
ward to a writing or an editorial career. 




Pedagogical priming 



Smart girls keep in actual touch with de- 
velopments in their fields of endeavor. The 
fact that well-educated girls are interested 
in things outside of their own special field 
is shown by the presence of students from 
other schools at meetings of the club. 

As a club within a club, the Poetry 
Committee works with other collegiate 
groups to encourage the writing of poetry 
and creative criticism. The English Club 
can truly say that it leaves no field of Eng- 
lish unexplored.

Scribunal Club 



For relaxation from the grind of type- 
writers and the strain of accounting, 
Simmons secretaries get together once a 
month, mainly to cement friendships 
between the professors and students, in 
spite of the damning influence of short- 
hand and typewriting. The members show 
remarkable foresight in providing a par- 
ticularly powerful helper — good food. 

Through numerous speakers during the 
year, the practical as well as the social side 
gets a push. But the high light of the entire 
Scribunal year is the Banquet, held in the 
late Spring, the very last chance students 
have to impress their profs. 




Scribbling scribes 



Student Union 



No academic mist for Simmons girls! 
In A.S.U. they have an organization which 
brings home to every student the sig- 
nificance of world events and especially 
their bearing upon youth in general. 

Through the efforts of A.S.U., all Sim- 
mons has been able lo hear such speakers 
as Carl Dcutsch, Czechoslovakia!! refugee, 





Militant minorities 

James Gavin of the Maritime Union, Ida 
Pruit who has been doing work on the re- 
building of industry in China, and Sim 
Copans, who was in France at the outbreak 
of the war, discuss topics in which their 
experience gives them authority. 

Great emphasis has been laid this year 
on the preservation of peace in the United 
States. A.S.U. is not affiliated with any 
political party, but supports legislation 
which is considered advantageous. A.S.U. 
cooperated with "Y" when the Thanks- 
giving Peace Service was presented, and 
in the Laboratory of Social Conditions. 

The Simmons chapter of the American 
Student Union is part of the national or- 
ganization and is also affiliated with the 
American Youth Congress.

Y.W.C.A. at Simmons stands for 
"Young Women Capable of Action." The 
variety of its activities extends from the 
first Freshman Party in the fall to the 
Student-Faculty Baseball game in the 
spring. One of the favorite haunts of "Y" 
members is Student Headquarters where 
Friday suppers and Student-Faculty sup-

formality which breaks down the reserve 
of the most solemn professor. 

All is not fun and frivolity, however. 
There are teas and discussions arranged by 
the Commission on Religion and Inter- 
faith, led by such speakers as Rabbi 
Schulman, Father Sheridan, and Dr. Kin-

The Commission on the World Christian 
Community held a German Appreciation 
Hour and a Japanese Tea and the Social 
Action Commission held a Laboratory of 
Social Conditions. 



Newman Club 




Spiritualizing the intellect 



Simmons Newman Club, in an attempt 
to uphold the aim long ago set by Cardinal 
Newman, is a club of Catholic Culture and 
Catholic Fellowship. Its purposes are 
identical with its activities: namely, Re- 
ligious, Educational, and Social — in that 
order of importance. 

Upholding its motto, "Cor ad quo 
loquitor!", Simmons Newman Club takes 
an active part in the activities of the Fed- 
eration of College Catholic Clubs, and 
represents the largest "per capita" mem- 
bership in Boston. Memorable to the heart 
of every member are the talks of Father 
Renehan on world affairs, sprinkled with 
the humor that he alone can display, 
Father Rooney's more serious treatises,

SIMMONS COLLEGE 



h II ■ :■ lippw 



Father Scannell's touching descriptions of 
life in the Brazilian missions, Father 
Sheridan's explanation of the Mass at the 
open meeting. 

The Supper-Dance at Technology is the 
first social event on the calendars of these 
two clubs. Federation Week-end, with its 
formal, discussion group, tea dance, and 
Communion Breakfast was very worth 
while. Newman Formal was the best 
possible antidote for the pangs of mid- 
years. But the dearest, most unforgettable 
event of our season was the Mother- 
Daughter Communion Breakfast held on 
Mother's Day for members of the Simmons 
Newman Club and their mothers. 



Menorah 



Menorah began its year with an informal 
program designed to bring the girls to- 
gether after a summer of separation and 
to welcome the incoming Freshmen. The 
high lights of a very busy season were an 
informal dance with Tech in November, 
the annual formal at Longwood Towers, a 
novel fashion show, and a bang-up ending 
with an all-day outing. 

Menorah has its serious side too. Every 
member of the Simmons organization 
automatically becomes a member of the 
Intercollegiate Menorah Society, recently 
reorganized to effect coordination between 
the various Menorah Societies and to plan 
varied activities in which all the chapters 
participate. As members of this group, 
Menorah members have heard such inter- 
esting speakers as Dr. Liebman and Dr. 
Myerson in discussions of Jewish problems. 
At meetings of the Simmons chapter, 
climaxed inevitably by gatherings around 
the tea table, Mr. Tryon spoke on current 
events, Mr. Bush on the arts and Madame 
Morize arranged a stimulating musical 
program. 




Dance publicity 

Unity Club 

An interest in intercollegiate activities, 
publicized by well-attended teas in the 
Lounge, informal Town and Gown dances 
at Brattle Hall in Cambridge, and round- 
table discussions on current topics, in 
conference with the various protestant 
churches of Boston, characterize the Sim- 
mons College Unity Club. The annual 
formal, held this year at the Parker House 
is also an anxiously awaited for night 
among club members. 

Speakers at the teas have included Mrs. 
Waitstill Sharpe, who amazed us with her 
complete description of the Czechoslo- 
vakian seizure; President Beatley, who

provoked much thought and raised much 
discussion when he asked "Has Religious 
Education Failed?"; Dr. Arthur Lee 
Kinsolving, who brought a bit of Christ- 
mas spirit to that season's meeting, held 
jointly with "Y"; and Miss Olga Lang, 
who gave first-hand information about 
Chinese co-operatives. They led discus- 
sions of religious unity. 



Christian Science 



Purely a religious group, the Christian 
Science Organization brings together all 
girls interested in bettering their under- 
standing of Christian Science. Meetings 
are held every two weeks at which selec- 
tions from the Bible and from the Christian 
Science textbook are read. The reader this 
year has been Ruth Garfink. Meetings of 
the club are open to all. Occasionally 
joint meetings with the Harvard, Rad- 
cliffe, or Boston University groups are 
planned. 

A lecture is given annually by a member 
of the Board of Lectureship of the First 
Church of Christ, Scientist, the speaker 
this year being Judge Frederick Hill. To 
this lecture everyone interested in Chris- 
tian Science is cordially invited. 

The organization is eager to welcome 
any new members. By working together as 
a club, it aims to promote co-operation 
among the Christian Scientists of the col- 
lege, and to increase a spirit of friendliness 
among all the members of the college. 

It is only natural that there should be a 
very active group of Christian Scientists 
at Simmons, where the most notable land- 
mark from the front windows is the dome 
of the Mother Church on Huntington 
Avenue. It is an effective reminder of the 
work begun by Mary Baker Eddy and 
carried on by her faithful followers in 
many groups similar to Simmons' own 
Christian Science Organization.

Ivy-S 

Ivy for friendship; S for Simmons, the 
newest of our student organizations, an 
outgrowth of the Refugee Committee, is 
mentioned everywhere. Organized under 
its new constitution as a permanent com- 
mittee for the relief of oppressed students, 
both European and Asiatic, Ivy-S pro- 
vides a means by which Simmons students 
may send help to students of other coun- 
tries — scholarships and money. 

Hard work by officers, committees, and 
subcommittees has made the name well 
known to all. Pledge cards and sealed con- 
tributions at a hall table every week have 
made it easy for any one who wishes to 
support the movement. As a result of good 
organization and effective publicity, Sim- 
mons has gone ahead of other colleges 
engaged in the undertaking, and has re- 
ceived honorable mention in the notices 
of International Student Service because 
of her co-operation. 

With the advice of Dean Mesick and 
Miss Gilman, the help of Dr. Rankin and 
Mrs. Davis, and co-operation from Mr. 
Playfair and the editors of News, the initial 
year of Ivy-S finds it an important subject 
of student interest and conversation. 
Greater success next year is almost certain.

Athletics 



Athletics go on at Simmons in spite of 
the decision of the Simmons athletic sup- 
porters to disband S.A.A. temporarily as a 
club. Under the Reorganization Commit- 
tee, working with a handicap but with lots 
of enthusiasm, sports have gone ahead 
rapidly. The Committee's plan was to 
encourage girls to sign up for the sport 
they enjoyed most — with an eye to the 
formation of a new all-college club if 
enough interest was shown. Unfortunately 
not enough enthusiasm was aroused in the 
club as an entity to consider starting as an 
organization again this year. So sports 
have gone on as separate units under the 
Reorganization Committee. The reason 
for this lack of zeal in a central club seems 
to be the change in the trend of interest in 
sports in general, a decided swing away 
from team sports and toward individual 
activities. 

A basketball season has been carried on 
under the able coaching of the Boston 
Bouve practice teachers. Two active teams 
were organized and the girls played once a 
week. It was hoped that the introduction 
of an interscholastic program would spur 
on the interest in this sport, but this method 
was found not to be too successful. In- 



Touchs 




stead, it was decided to invite several 
greater Boston women's colleges to par- 
ticipate in an individual sports Field Day 
at Simmons in the spring. 

This season has seen a tremendous in- 
crease in the skating-bug. The tennis 
courts have been flooded and the excellent 
weather made possible increased skating 
on the Muddy River overflow, so that 
most any day you could look across the 
Fenway or out the back windows and see 
girls cavorting gaily on silver blades. 
Through the efforts of Miss Diall, the 
Arena gave lessons on Wednesdays and 
Fridays to a group of about sixteen girls. 




Ping-pong paddling 

We don't like to brag, but we're pleased to 
say that through this venture quite a 
compact little group of coming fancy- 
skaters has sprung up, and the future of 
this activity presents a brilliant outlook. 

In addition to the these sports, the Com- 
mittee organized a ping-pong tournament 
in which all the classes participated, al- 
though the Juniors walked away with the 
honors, due to Sis Wilson's valiant efforts. 
Horseback riding and lifesaving have gone 
on smoothly as usual, and tennis practice 
shows more than good prospects for our 
proposed Field Day. 

Athletic activities are not restricted to 
affairs arranged by the Athletic Commit-

Boot removal 

tee, however. We participate in sports that 
have no connection with the college — 
except that they're held there — and even 
in those which have no connection with 
the college at all. 

At the Brookline Avenue dormitories 
each year the "halls" play the "houses" 
in a tennis tournament and this year for 
the first time they competed at ping-pong. 
Interest in these sports is not limited to 
competitive playing, either. There is 
always a rush for Evans Hall basement and 
the ping-pong table after school and after 
dinner, and many girls take their dates 
there for a game in the evening. 



In the fall until the snow flies and with 
the first sunny days of spring, the tennis 
courts at school and on campus are oc- 
cupied continually. Girls who don't rate 
their tennis ability high enough to enter 
tournaments enjoy games just for fun. The 
campus badminton court has its occupants 
as well. 

Swimming is always a popular sport, 
particularly with the Freshmen, who, as 
residents of Brookline, have free access to 
the Brookline Municipal Pool. Many of the 
other dorm students willingly part with 
quarters for the privilege of enjoying the 
pool. In the late spring there are those who 
travel to near-by beaches to brave the chilly 
waters of the ocean. 

Skiing in the winter and sailing in the 
summer are other favorite sports. In good 
weather there's cycling for the fortunate 
few who own bikes. They are convinced 
that there is no better way of seeing the 
sights in the countryside near Boston and 
it's a grand way for car-less dorm students 
to go on picnics. 

Some of the girls roller-skate for exercise 
but most of us content ourselves with long 
walks all over Boston. A few of us find time 
for golf but most of us are more familiar 
with teas than tees.

wriid dAAi& 





We play and live — in an effort to put a little frosting on our 
curricular cake: 

Dates and dinners, music and movies, parties and person- 
als, smokes and sings. 

Topping the smooth spread of our own hobbies, pleasures 
and contacts are the festive decorations provided by our college 
life. Ribbons of laughter, garlands of gaiety, sprills of sentiment 
and letters of friendship combine into a colorful design of fun, 
liberally applied by Simmons. Our own crazy capacity for en- 
joyment forms the even background, a background made of 
everything from listening to Beethoven's Seventh, or sprawling 
on the grass, to pretending dignity in black robes. 

Thus our own original interests are strongly blended with 
the sweets of social life which Simmons offers us. 






I^Jl^K |^f *- l-O Life in '40, according to the census- 
taker, is a serious matter; life in '40, 
according to us, is a delightful conglomeration of exciting 
doings. 

From fleet-footed hilarity at Freshman Formal to a post- 
graduation last fling at Senior Luncheon, we revel in relaxation. 
Our pleasures range from quiet conversation in lamp-lit rooms, 
over cokes at the drugstore, or in the smoking rooms while 
knitting needles fly, to nights of kaleidoscopic gaiety. 

Fall to us means the Fenway carpeted with leaves, football 
games, horseback riding, the excitement of a new start among 
old friends. Winter means polished skis, silver blades and snow- 
ball fights. Spring means Step-singing, the sun-warmed comfort 
of hours on the Back Steps and the sound of voices from the ten- 
nis courts. '40 to us means memories of happiness. 






INFORMAL SOCIETY 



There just isn't any way to describe us. 
We don't stay put long enough to be classi- 
fied. We manage in our peripatetic exis- 
tence to drink enough tea to float the 
whole of England and enough coffee to 
balance the Brazilian budget. After 4:10 
almost any day we dump our books and 
grab a teacup in the lounge, in the Evans 
Hall game-room, in front of the fireplace 
in South Hall, or in our own houses. We 
thrust steaming cups under the astonished 
noses of faculty guests and try to converse 
politely between mouthfuls of cookies. We 
expertly balance saucers at Alumnae and 
Open House teas and even at President's 
Reception.

Fortunately, our tannin-quaffing capaci- 
ties are not unlimited, so there's still time

us a dividend by now and the Blue Ship 
and Durgin-Park pay us one in hours of 
enjoyment spent in conversation over red- 
checked tablecloths or watching the lights 
of fairy ships reflected in the harbor. Ex- 
tensive exertion is all that keeps us from 
looking like Jack Sprat's wife. We climb 
all the gallery stairs in Boston to sit panting 
through happy hours at Pops, the opera, 
the ballet, all the new plays and most of 
the old ones, and lots and lots of movies.

FORMAL SOCIETY 



Life is not all sweaters and skirts, school- 
books and teacups and trips into town. 
We're right in form when it comes to 
formals, too. We can look a receiving line 
in the eye, though we'd rather not, and we 
spend lots of hours feeling glamorous in 
long skirts. Mic Dance at the Statler 
Imperial is only the beginning. We dance 
on to sweet music in softly-lighted ball- 
rooms at Menorah and Newman-Unity 
and chuckle with our dates over News's 
newsy programs. The Freshmen float 
through Freshman Formal and decide that 
Simmons' form of formality is tops; the 
Sophomores sweep through Shuffle and 
agree.

the long tables in the Refectory and gleam 
in candlelight. We don't do all the inviting 
to formal affairs, either. We air our best 
bibs and tuckers at all the nicest hotels and 
fraternity houses, not to mention Walker 
Memorial and certain other New England 
college halls we could name. We treasure 
faded flowers and old dance programs but 
we like new ones better.

DORMITORY LIFE 



Dorms are made of bricks, boards, and 
bells — especially bells. There are bells to 
wake us in the morning in time to beat the 
eight o'clock signs on the Refectory doors, 
bells to get us to lunch on time, bells to 
keep us quiet, or to try to, and bells to tell 
us when to shout — as if we needed telling. 
Then there are those horrible, belligerent, 
jangling bells which call us from warm 
beds and send us scurrying to find coats 
and valuables and stumble downstairs to 
fire drills. There are buzzers and shrilling 
telephones which demand answers from 
belles of another ilk.

Dorm life isn't all bells, though, far from 
it. There are long hours of freedom, 
crammed with activity, afternoon hours 
replete with strenuous activity on the ten- 
nis and badminton courts, at ping-pong 
in Evans, and holding snowball fights 
almost anywhere. There are winter after- 
noons of relaxation over books, not the 
school variety, hours of knitting every- 
thing from socks to afghans, of talking over 
everything from dates to the latest news 
from Europe, of writing letters, of smoking 
and singing and even just sitting. There 
are evenings which stretch far into the 
night and are never long enough.

COLLEGE 



Those long, dark nights of studying for 
exams and laboring over term papers are 
mercifully few, though never few enough 
to suit us. But there are always the hours 
we spend at our desks, twisted into strange 
positions, flanked by coke bottle and radio 
and faced with books, thinking of all the 
things we might be doing. Thoughts 
usually give way to actions, books are 
banished, and we end up playing bridge, 
cooking concoctions in the kitchenettes, 
listening to vies, flitting out to buy ice 
cream from the Good Humor man, taking 
perverse delight in playing tricks on each 
other, or talking far into the night.

We'll always remember the scurrying and

We'll never forget singing Christmas 
carols at Miss Christian's door at 3 A.M., 
being wakened by singing for May Break- 
fast, waiting for the mail to come in, telling 
Theresa our troubles, sprawling on the 
grass in the afternoon sun, rearranging 
our rooms periodically, helping Mike 
shovel walks and Jimmy plant pansies, 
rushing home from dates, packing bags for 
week ends, or any of the other things that 
make dorm life a delight.

GRADUATION 



June brings to the Simmons campus green 
lawns and flowering shrubs, ivy-clad walls 
and bright flowers. Against this back- 
ground moves the sometimes stately, 
sometimes sprightly pageant of Class Day 
and Graduation. Class Day brings a pic- 
ture of bright sunlight on colorful dresses, 
our friends and families massed on the 
Colonnade. Across the campus come the 
notes of the "Marching Song" and the 
long line of Seniors, flanked by white- 
clad Juniors bearing ropes of daisies, 
winds past Brick House and North Hall 
to the steps of the Colonnade. The Seniors 
sing, the ivy is safely planted and they 
turn to luncheon on the lawn.

Evening finds them in frothy formals at

only the tremulous seriousness of Bac-

introduced to our own professors at Presi- 
dent's Reception, and then Graduation. 
The last day of all dawns on frantic pack- 
ing, last-minute repairs to wrinkled gowns, 
the arrival of flowers. Then Symphony 
Hall at last, the faculty leads the Seniors 
down the aisle, Mr. Beatley begins: "By 
the authority vested in me . . .," and reads 
the long list of names. Graduation is over. 
All that's left is the shaky laughter of 
Senior Luncheon and the last good-byes.
